At the core of our endeavor lies food safety—a fundamental aspect of preserving the health and well-being of our people. By implementing stringent measures to ensure the safety of our food products, we shield ourselves from the dangers of contaminants and foodborne illnesses. The consequences of compromised food are profound, impacting not only individual health but also placing immense strain on our healthcare system and hindering overall economic productivity.
As we advance, our vision must encompass food security—an assurance that every citizen has access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food to lead healthy and active lives. We are mindful of the challenges ahead, such as a burgeoning population, limited agricultural resources, and susceptibility to natural disasters and climate change. To eradicate hunger, malnutrition, and poverty and foster a stable and thriving society, securing our food sources becomes an unyielding imperative.
Beyond food security, we aspire for food sovereignty, championing the right of our nation and its people to govern our food systems. This entails promoting local, sustainable food production, guided by our distinct cultural and environmental practices. Empowering ourselves to make agricultural decisions that prioritize local production and safeguard the interests of small-scale farmers and communities is paramount to our self-reliance.
